Dave Madden is author of The Authentic Animal: Inside the Odd and Obsessive World of Taxidermy. His shorter work has appeared in Harper's, Prairie Schooner, The Rumpus, DIAGRAM, The Normal School, Denver Quarterly, and elsewhere. He is the recipient of the Sherwood Anderson Award in fiction, an AWP Intro Journals Award in nonfiction, a Bernard De Voto Fellowship at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, and a Tennessee Williams Scholarship at the Sewanee Writers' Conference. He teaches in the MFA program at the University of San Francisco.
With his slim but powerful short story collection, If You Need Me I'll Be Over There, Madden expands upon this theme, the geography of coming out, along with numerous other territories of family life and marriage, both gay and straight. . . . His characters come across as singularly alive, their attitudes neither stereotyped nor predictable-yet still recognizeable. * The Gay & Lesbian Review *
